NILES - JoAnn Sicilian of Liberty was all too excited to pick up her edition of the 2012 Tribune Chronicle's High School Football Preview. Her grandson, Zac, a senior at Lakeview, was just one of the many football players highlighted in the 120-page book.
Sicilian, along with many others, flocked to O'Charley's in Niles to pick up their copy on Wednesday afternoon. The Tribune Chronicle, along with Covelli Enterprises, hosted the Second Annual Tailgate Event, in which the book was sold for a discounted rate.
Along with the Tribune and Covelli, ESPN 1240, WBBW, hosted "The Ryan and Christian Show" live from O'Charley's.
